I would offer my services where I can. New build more space for perma games on my end and will be expanding that to.
You know for the issues at hand, I don't even think one would need to worry about having space for perma games. As Drenus said in a post or two before yours;
"but the main problem here, is that exactly those people, are those that don't read the threads, don't read the rules, or guides"
That hits it on the head. You would not even need the games installed to walk a majority of the people through the steps listed all over this site.

As a matter of fact, you can say I donated 36€ to CH since It's what it costed for me to upgrade my HDD from a 1TB to 2TB which leaves me with 1 TB space free for CH

If we need to throw a TB in the ring, I am in with that.
It might be worth it to establish a separate discussion board for tossing these out to the community.
This could accomplish two things. CHU could refrain from internal testing while waiting for the five (or other amount chosen) acknowledgements from users stating the purportedly defunct trainer was in fact failing. This could also spare any others expense by relying only on gamers with the access to the title already. Having assigned volunteers might incur cost at their expense if they needed to obtain the title(s).
That being said, if possible, perhaps a notification could go out to those that have signed up as volunteers. That way if any in that group do possess access to the game they can be notified that testing has been requested.
This would still leave a gap if no others were interested or had access to test, but perhaps that would warrant retiring of a trainer or another established check procedure.
Forgive me if I am mirroring other comments as I have honestly only skimmed the discussion's first page at this point as I am viewing from work. Wanted to offer the thought that came to me just the same.
Yeah, but having more than 5 volunteers increases the chances, but I shouldn't encounter a game I can't test, even if it doesn't work on Windows 8, I just use a VM to test it. And again if there are costs for me to obtain a game, I will note it down as a donation to CH
I have 5 swappable HDDs filled with 8 TB of games in my PC and it's still not enough, that's why I'm building another tower of swappable HDs to have my games ready whenever I want, running on the OS they where made for and the proper IE of that time.
Why go against when you can go with?
* Updated game trainers and cheats daily
* Get notified when new cheats are added
* Request which games get new trainers
* Priority support with any problem
